Red Oak School & WizIQ: Endless Possibilities for Online Homeschooling
Home schooling is never easy. Between managing work, family and many daily chores parents feel overwhelmed by the need to find the right educational resources – from books, to teachers, to academic tests for their children. Red Oak Academy understood these everyday challenges of parents who opted for homeschooling for their kids.
The academy was set up with a goal to provide education services at par with offline learning for regular, gifted and special needs students in grades PreK-12. While the academy had excellent teachers, they were challenged to find the right technology that provided them the necessary teaching functionality, at affordable cost.
The academy was using Moodle to host their online education program and did video streaming internally. However, they felt restricted by the limited functionality. They also used WebEx for a while. But the platform was very expensive. A chance search online for affordable learning delivery platform led them to WizIQ and since then there has been no looking back.
WizIQ webRTC Virtual classroom has been made for learning from ground up and therefore includes all the functionality that a teacher may require.
It enabled Red Oak Academy to:
– Organize synchronous classes
– Communicate with students in real time through audio, video and text chat
– Use extensive whiteboard features for explaining advanced concepts in math and science
– Provide class recordings
Today 300+ students are taking various courses at Red Oak Academy
